This is another of these situations where I saw a viewer comment that led me to listen to one of my older songs (the original Disciple of the Wind) and made me instantly think “Damn, this slaps, but the quality is not very good – I should update this”. For this song it’s getting a little complicated, because I technically already remade this song before, as part of the first Disciple Month album Lord of the Elements. So I decided to change the name of the remake to Disciple of the Storm.
Compared to the version from Lord of the Elements (which added Molgera for example) this one stays true to the original. Or “truer” – I decided to remove the Faith is for the Transient People parts entirely in favor of more Song of Storms parts. Other than that you get the usual changes in instruments, drums, added effects, more powerful backing, etc – all in all I think this turned out really well and is (in my humble opinion) far superior to both versions of Disciple of the Wind. But to be perfectly honest, I completely forgot that the Disciple of the Wind in Lord of the Elements was actually a remake/remix of the original song…
To sum it up, Disciple of the Storm contains the following themes:
- Fighting of the Spirit (Tales of Phantasia)
- Thunder Tornado (Mega Man 9)
- Wind God Girl (Touhou 9: Phantasmagoria of Flower View)
- Song of Storms (The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time)
So let’s hear it:
And as usual there’s a video to go along with it:
This is just another remake, and it’s a one-shot, so don’t expect another Disciple Month because of this. I hear your calls, but I just don’t feel like I can pull off another one – the third one already felt way too forced. I can imagine that one or the other of the original Disciple Month songs might get a similar treatment as Wind here, but that’s probably it.
